Michigan Library Appreciation Month

Get ready to celebrate Michigan Library Appreciation Month! This October we are celebrating Michigan libraries and library staff and highlighting all the many ways libraries facilitate exploration and discovery!

During these unprecedented times, Michigan libraries have expanded their access to digital content and found innovative ways to continue their programming virtually.

Help us highlight the amazing work our libraries continue to do to support our communities, and promote all of the amazing virtual, digital and distance programs, services and collections available and waiting for Michigan library patrons to discover.

Join us in participating in Michigan Library Appreciation Month and help us bring awareness to our libraries and the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in continuing to serve our communities.

There are several ways libraries, library staff and patrons can get involved. Last month we asked that you submit the Michigan Library Appreciation Month proclamation to your local elected officials to give them time to proclaim their support! If you have not done so already, we encourage you to contact your elected officials as soon as possible. Issuing a proclamation can sometimes take several weeks but it's simple to do:

  • Identify a council member, mayor or supervisor to sponsor the proclamation. Contact information can be found on your local city, county or township website

We also have several other ways to get involved! Download social media graphics, sample posts, a sample press release and more. Check out our media kit with resources and easy ways to participate and plan to join the celebration to highlight Michigan libraries, librarians, and library workers all October long!
